They're calling this the most brutal winter in the United States in 15 years. Let's hear from some of you guys who are living in a straw bale house. Hopefully all the reports will be good news, but at the same time it might be interesting to hear from some folks who wish they had done things a bit differently.

Better than those in conventionally built homes - that is for sure. My SB is totally off the grid and heated by wood - it rarely gets below 77 F inside. I am in N. GA. and just got through our second major storm in so many weeks. PV panels have de-iced and are charging up the Surrettes. Solar hot water tank is holding right around 150 F. Could not be more cozy.
